    Walking through the streets of the city ... we went back to visit the palaces of 1500 Gal with furniture and art that surround you with their history and that of the noble families who lived in them

    Not a spectacular "must see", but nice enough to do the visit.They also have English explanation cards (hidden) behind the Italian ones.  more »

    We did the tour of 3 palaces. The tour focuses on works and quite little about the history of the Palace... too bad. Don't miss the climb on the roof of the Palace rosso is superb!

Where to stay in Genoa

Located just steps from the city's famous tourist sites, Genoa's centrally located B&Bs and hotels offer comfortable lodgings suitable for all tastes and budgets. To avoid the expense and stress of driving and parking in Genoa's central districts, look for a boutique hotel just outside the city center. Staying out of the busy heart of Genoa is a practical and affordable compromise, offering a good base for exploring numerous fishing villages located along the coastline. Hostels operating in residential areas also offer private parking and easy access to buses into the center of town.
